The Foreign Delegation
Several Saint Mary's College basketball players were featured in a San Francisco Chronicle story about how foreign students are changing the face of Bay Area college basketball.
The article notes that the Saint Mary's men's team leads the Bay Area in the number of international players on the court, including Frederic Adjiwanou of France; Rafael DaSilva of Brazil; Daniel Kickert of Australia, and Reda Rhalimi of Morocco. In addition, the Gaels' women's roster includes Maija Lahde of Finland and Erika Urmonaite of Lithuania.
"The basketball world has shrunk," Saint Mary's men's coach Randy Bennett said.
